Carl’s Jr. Charboiled Burgers

Posted by: Wen Ching In: Fast Food

After buying our movie tickets, we spotted Carl’s Jr. which is recently opened in Mid Valley. It is next to McDonald’s and located near Mid Valley cinema ticket counter.

Anyway, the restaurant looks bright and cheerful, just as other fast food restaurants would look like.

The seats were rather special though, they used oval shaped tables which we find interesting. However, we were quite disappointed to find their tables not properly cleaned.

This is where we can choose our own pickles or sauce and also get our drinks. They offered many soft drinks but we chose to have Carl’s Jr’s iced tea. It wasn’t added with sugar, so we added a little sweetener and lemon to make our own iced lemon tea. It tasted quite good and refreshing. Besides their iced tea, they also serve Channel Islands Roasting Company Coffee, it would be a good choice if you’re a coffee lover!

So here’s what we ordered. We had a charboiled chicken club combo which includes the charboiled chicken burger, a refillable drink and fries for RM21.95. We also had a Portobello mushroom burger. The fries tasted quite good, it was served warm, thicker and fried with real potatoes as you can see the brown colour skin of the potatoes. Also, we like the fact that they actually serve Heinz tomato ketchup.

This charboiled chicken burger was huge, the meat was so much larger than the bun. It was delicious, the chicken bacon was quite crispy and it tasted even better when added with gherkin pickles. And as their tagline said, “it’s gonna get messy”, we got really messy when eating this large burger.

We also had a Portobello mushroom burger. Since I don’t take beef, we requested them to change the beef to chicken. The price for the single Portobello sandwich is RM18, but the change of beef to chicken costs RM1. Isn’t chicken cheaper than beef? Anyway, this burger tasted fantastic, the mushrooms were really sweet and juicy, a wonderful combination with the chicken, we enjoyed this a lot!

Service was quite average. The serving of the burgers were really huge, but of course, the price is really expensive for fast food if compared to McDonald’s or Burger King. For more information, check out their official website here.

Have not been yet but tried before (like Nic) a number of eclipse back. Somehow I remember the burgers to be on the dry side. Btw, I don’t think they should charge RM1 for a change of meat.

Wmw, wow, even larger size in the US? We don’t think we’ll be able to finish it. Haha!

Nic (khkl), not sure about the RM30 burger. So which moon are you going back there to eat again? Haha!

Tummythoz, haha, a number of eclipse back? You guys are creative! Yeah, the RM1 charge wasn’t worth it but we have no choice.

Jojo, yeah, seems like Carl’s Jr. is well known as being expensive. But once in a while will be fine since it is tasty!

Big Boys Oven, yeah, it is a little pricey but eat it once in a while will be ok. It’s quite delicious!

Ling239, yeah, that one is good. Maybe it’s even better in beef! Do check it out!

Akihiro Ito, we visited your blog. Nice blog there!

Ai Wei, revisit? Maybe once in a while but will not frequent this place because it’s quite expensive. Do check it out someday!

Alexander, thank you and you’re welcome. Do check this fast food restaurant out if you like it!

Kampungboycitygal, seems like there’re both positive and negative reviews about this restaurant. But we still think it’s good overall!

Jason, we haven’t been to the 1 Utama outlet before. Yeah, perhaps because they just opened.

I kinda like the Chilli Cheeseburger though. the other one I tried was the guacamole (or something) but was rather forgetful. though definitely pricier than others they allow unlimited refill of the drinks/condiments, which was nice!

J2fkm, is the Chili Cheeseburger nice? We’ll keep that in mind and order it next time! Yeah, we like the fact that the drinks and condiments are refillable, but yet it’s still very expensive! :)
